EVER SLOW GREEN – Re-afforestation in Auroville, South India
50 years ago, a unique afforestation project unintentionally took root on an eroded desert plateau in Tamil Nadu, South India. People from diverse countries came together to establish the international experimental township of Auroville. While some early residents were initially driven by idealism and the necessity to make the harsh conditions more liveable, they slowly developed expertise in cultivating the Tropical Dry Evergreen Forest, a rare forest type native to the coastal belt of Tamil Nadu. Today, the lush Auroville forest is an outstanding example of eco-restoration, recreating and preserving a type of tropical forest that is on the verge of extinction. Ever Slow Green tells the story of this 50-years-young forest through the diverse characters who have dedicated their lives to bringing Auroville’s forest to fruition.
